Mike Trout went 3-for-4 with a homer, a triple and three RBI against the Dodgers on Friday.
The Angels had six hits in the loss, all of them coming from Kole Calhoun and Trout. At least they were hitting back-to-back, so the Angels did manage three runs. It wasn't enough, though. Trout now has 32 homers in 99 games, leaving him just four shy of last year's career high. Aug 1 - 3:13 AM

Date:

Mike Trout (wrist) is back in Thursday's lineup against the Astros.

Trout missed the previous two games due to inflammation in his left wrist, but the hope is that it won't be a lingering issue. He's back in center field Thursday with the Angels trying to avoid a sweep.
Jul 30 - 4:34 PM

Mike Trout (wrist) is out of the Angels' starting lineup again on Wednesday night.

Trout injured his wrist on a diving catch attempt Monday. An MRI taken Tuesday showed only inflammation and the star center fielder is fully expected to avoid the 15-day disabled list. David DeJesus is starting in center field Wednesday in his Angels debut.
Jul 29 - 4:41 PM

An MRI on Mike Trout's left wrist showed only mild inflammation.

The Angels weren't worried about Trout's wrist, but this gives them and fantasy owners peace of mind. Manager Mike Scioscia said that Trout could return to the lineup as soon as Wednesday.
Jul 28 - 11:50 PM

Mike Trout (wrist) will undergo an MRI Tuesday.

Trout tweaked his left wrist during Sunday's game. The Angels don't seem worried at this point and think he's probably just day-to-day, but they wanted to send him for an MRI just to be safe. More should be available on his status later Tuesday.
Jul 28 - 6:14 PM

Mike Trout is not in the Angels' lineup Tuesday.

Trout tweaked his left wrist Sunday afternoon on a diving catch, though he also went 4-for-4 with two home runs and five RBI in that same game. It's obviously not a serious issue. Daniel Robertson will start in center field Tuesday night against the Astros.
Jul 28 - 4:18 PM

Mike Trout went off against the Rangers in Sunday's 13-7 win, hitting a pair of home runs including a grand slam and finishing 4-for-4 with five RBI and three runs scored.

Trout crushed a solo homer in the first inning off of Rangers starter Nick Martinez. This was just a sign of things to come, as five innings later, the MVP stepped to the plate with the bases juiced and unloaded on a Spencer Patton offering to give the Angels an 8-2 lead. Trout's now launched 31 homers and the five RBI gave him 64 driven in for the season. He's hitting .315/.405/.632 and just seems to keep improving. At 23 years old, it's scary to think of the kinds of numbers he could theoretically post in the future.
Jul 26 - 7:28 PM

Mike Trout went 2-for-3 with a homer, two RBI and a walk against the Rangers on Friday.

That's because he's Mike Trout and he often has games like this. He's up to 29 homers for the season, leaving him just seven shy of last year's total.
Jul 25 - 1:07 AM

Mike Trout (heel) returned to the Angels' lineup Wednesday.

Trout missed Tuesday's game with a sore left heel, but fortunately for everyone it doesn't appear it will be a huge hindrance. Trout is batting third and will serve as the team's designated hitter for Wednesday's contest against the Twins.
Jul 22 - 6:07 PM

Mike Trout is not in the Angels' lineup Tuesday.

He's dealing with some minor left heel soreness, but he's sitting out mainly because he played both ends of Monday's doubleheader (although he was the designated hitter in one game). Trout expects to play on Wednesday. Daniel Robertson is handling center field Tuesday.
Jul 21 - 6:05 PM

Mike Trout went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run as the Angels beat the Red Sox in game two of Monday's doubleheader.

Trout kept pace with teammate Albert Pujols for the league lead in home runs when he hit a solo shot in the fifth inning. Pujols, who had homered in the second, broke the tie with a seventh inning home run. Trout has 28 home runs with 57 RBI and an MVP-esque .307/.400/.614 batting line. He's homered eight times in July and he still has 10 days left to add on.
Jul 21 - 12:54 AM

Mike Trout homered in the bottom of the ninth to give the Angels a 1-0 win over the Red Sox on Friday.

Koji Uehara snuck one fastball by Trout to open the at-bat. Why he risked trying another one is anybody's guess. Trout crushed it to left-center for his 27th homer of the year. It's his third career walkoff, the other two coming against the Rays and Astros last year.
Jul 18 - 12:43 AM

Mike Trout won his second straight All-Star Game MVP award Tuesday, smacking a solo homer, drawing a walk and scoring two runs in the American League's 6-3 victory.

He led off the game by lining a Zack Greinke offering just over the right-field wall. Trout then scored in the fifth after reaching on a fielder's choice and could have scored again in the seventh if he hadn't been pinch-run for. Trout became the first player in history to win back-to-back All-Star Game MVP awards. He certainly has a great shot to also be the first ever to win a total of three given that he's just 23. The AL will have home-field advantage in the World Series.
Jul 15 - 12:01 AM

Mike Trout will hit leadoff for the American League All-Stars on Tuesday night in Cincinnati.

The full starting lineup from American League manager Ned Yost: CF Mike Trout, 3B Josh Donaldson, 1B Albert Pujols, DH Nelson Cruz, RF Lorenzo Cain, LF Adam Jones, C Salvador Perez, 2B Jose Altuve, SS Alcides Escobar. Astros left-hander Dallas Keuchel will take the bump first for the American League.
Jul 13 - 1:26 PM

Mike Trout went 2-for-4 with an RBI ground out and two runs scored in Sunday's blowout win over the Mariners.

Trout's bat has gone ballistic in the month of July, as he's homered six times in the first 10 games of the month. He posted a relatively quiet game on Sunday, with just a pair of singles and two runs scored, but the recent hot stretch is a nice reminder of Trout's casually brilliant offensive ways. He's hitting .312/.405/.614 with 26 homers, 55 RBI, 68 runs scored and nine steals in 320 at-bats.
